Steve Miller’s performance at this year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony will be aired on TV despite his earlier comments that he may withhold permission.

Miller was was inducted into the Rock Hall alongside Deep Purple, N.W.A, Chicago and Cheap Trick earlier this month. And he used his acceptance speech to launch a tirade against the Rock Hall and the music industry in general.

He was inducted by The Black Keys, who later said they regretted being involved in the “uncomfortable” spectacle and that Miller had made no effort to figure out who they were.

Miller then said he’d rather have been inducted by Elton John and slammed the “ridiculous paperwork” he would have to fill out to grant permission for his performance to be broadcast on HBO.

But HBO have since released their schedule for the April 30 broadcast, with Miller said to be performing Rock’n Me and The Joker.

Stef wrote close to 5000 stories during his time as assistant online news editor and later as online news editor between 2014-2016. An accomplished reporter and journalist, Stef has written extensively for a number of UK newspapers and also played bass with UK rock favourites Logan. His favourite bands are Pixies and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Stef left the world of rock'n'roll news behind in late 2016 and has since moved to his beloved Canada.
